Episode 010 – Scoops and Hoops

George Catlin’s “Ball-play of the Choctaw–Ball Up”

This week, Vinny and Kathleen try to convince Ed to care about sports by talking about lacrosse. Lacrosse, I say! They discuss the NCAA Championships (fill out your bracket!), take a side trip to the Carrier Dome, where you can and can’t pound on each other, peppering goalies, the structure of the game, the equipment, the need to quit stalling, and the teams to watch.

After some technical difficulties and a change of venue, they discuss the forces that conspired to stop Ed from watching hockey, which professional hockey team is more like Cinderella (hint: it’s the Islanders,) and the Chicago Bulls vs. the Miami Heat.

    The Bulls are down three games to one at this point. They are unfortunately done. The Blackhawks appear to be the team to watch. I have watched lacrosse a few times, but have not found it particularly interesting. I will have to watch it more carefully next time I get a chance to watch it. It may be more interesting than I thought if I watch it more carefully.
